Product review: Jane Carter Revitalizing Leave-in vs Obia Curl Hydration Spray

Who doesn’t love moisturized hair?

I got the chance to try out both Jane Carter’s Revitalizing Leave-in and Obia Curl Hydration Spray and I can’t get over how similar both are.

They both come in a spray bottle. Although Jane Carter’s is milky and Obia is clear, they both have the same watery consistency. Obia incorporates less ingredients when compared to Jane Carter’s. However, they both do incredibly for my hair.


Jane Carter’s: Water (Aqua), Polyquarternum 7, Aloe Baradensis (Aloe Vera) Gel, Salvia Officinalis (Sage) Leaf Extract, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract, Lawsonia Inermis (Henna) Extract, Sodium Cocoyl, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, (Caprylic Glycerides), Soyamid DEA, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol.

Obia’s: Purified Water (Aqua), Vegetable Glycerin, Argania Spinosa (Argan) Oil, Rose Oil, Cocos nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glycine soya (Soybean) Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E), Gluconolactone and Sodium Benzoate, Fragrance (Parfum).

They both have pretty similar ingredients with Jane Carter spotting some form of protein and Obia has glycerin as its second ingredient – this may not augur well when styling hair in humid weather.

Description and Claims

Jane Carter’s:  Dry hair needs moisture and Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner works wonders for rehydrating second-day hair. Perfect for fragile, color-treated or relaxed hair, this product works as a protective barrier against further damage. The lightweight formula allows you to reduce the temperature when flat-ironing or blow drying your hair (and it also doubles as a sun screen for your hair). A terrific detangler for those with straighter hair (it works especially well on children’s hair). We also recommend using it as a twice-daily moisturizer – simply spritz in the air and walk under the mist.

Obia’s: Moisturize, hydrate and refresh your hair and scalp with natural ingredients like Argan Oil and Rose Oil.  This pH balanced formula conditions, adds shine and detangles hair without leaving buildup or residue.  Can be used daily.

Well Obia is obviously more modest about the effectiveness of their product but they are both lightweight and really great moisturizers!


Bear in mind that these products are daily sprays so it would help if expectations are tailored according to this. Both lightweight and nourishing, your strands would be glad to be revitalized by these products. Both smell quite nice actually, Obia has more rosy smell thanks to the oil utilized and I can’t quite place the Jane Carter smell but I can say that it is not overpowering so it works well for me. I did not try flat-ironing with the Jane Carter leave-in because I don’t own one and it obviously would have been a poor detangler for my 4c hair.
